Agony is first-person survival horror game for PC, PS4 and XONE powered by Unreal Engine 4. It is the debut project of Madmind Studio, a Polish studio founded by experienced developers who had worked on such titles as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, Alien Rage, Enemy Front, and Tom Clancy's The Division.
The protagonist of Agony goes to hell. The player’s task is to find a way to escape this cursed place. His only hints are foggy images of the Red Goddess who reigns in the abyss.
The hero is a historical character but doesn’t remember his past because of his amnesia. This is why discovering his true identity and the reasons for going to hell are some of players’ tasks.
Agony for PC, PS4 and XONE is an action adventure game that belongs to the survival horror category. While playing, we observe the events from the eyes of the protagonist. He does not have any fighting skills so survival requires us to avoid confrontation with demons. Survival is made easier by the ability of controlling the minds of encountered humans and lesser demons. Apart from the stealth gameplay, the production also features numerous logic puzzles.
The vision of hell presented by the developers consists of four areas, and their careful exploration allows us to find many useful items and clues that let us better understand the plot.
Agony features only a single player campaign. The developers did not implement any kind of multiplayer mode.
The production is powered by Unreal Engine 4 which ensures high level of details and modern visual effects. The developers put in a lot of effort into creating a visual design of hell. Demons that cause goose-bumps are especially noteworthy aspect of it.
